The Romanisation of the Civitas Vangionum


This is a study of the process of integration of the Vangiones into the Roman Empire from the first century BC to the third century AD. These were a 'Celtic' people, as will be shown, on the left bank of the Rhine. Changes in settlement patterns from La Tène to Roman times
are analysed in detail, like the decline of oppida on hilltops, the form and function of villas and the urbanisation as seen in the civitas capital Borbetomagus (Worms). The various changes in society are investigated through a detailed study of Celtic onomastics, the use of epigraphy, comparison of élite residences in pre-Roman and Roman times, etc.
The influence of urban settlements and the army (which was based in the provincial capital Mogontiacum on the land of the Vangiones) on the Romanisation process are mentioned, as well as economic developments, especially the introduction of coinage. Three appendices
give information of over more than two hundred sites in the civitas, listing names, deities, and titles found on the over two hundred and sixty inscriptions, and produce a statistic for coin use of some sample sites.
La civitas Vangionum (la région Worms, Mayence, Bingen, Donnersberg en Germanie Supérieure) a servi d'exemple pour étudier les concepts de l'identité, de la résistance et de l'acculturation - une étude basée sur les témoignages épigraphiques et archéologiques, y compris une étude onomastique et numismatique et un inventaire de plus de 200 sites archéologiques.
